The Board of Education, in certain instances, shall grant students who wish to graduate from high school in less time than the ordinary four-year sequence the permission to complete graduation requirements on an alternative schedule. To this end, all normal graduation requirements must be completed for early graduation. Furthermore, a student shall not be denied an exact class rank if he/she wishes to complete the usual four-year course of studies in three years.
In regard to individual student requests, the following factors may be considered: the student's grades, performance in school, his/her future plans, and benefits that would accrue to the student if the request for early graduation were to be approved. The Building Principal shall make the final decision on whether to grant permission after consultation with the individual student's counselor, student and parent(s).
